Prime Minister David Cameron, RINO

Or whatever the British equivalent is – Tory in Name Only? TINO? (No, that would imply that the Conservative Party has a, you know, genuinely conservative core, which I'm not sure about; readers well-versed in British politics, feel free to opine).

Marc Thiessen points to a speech Cameron made a few years ago that makes him sound rather like Obama on the subject of foreign policy and the “special relationship”.

A Tory "RINO" is a Wet. They are the tax collectors for the Welfare State. Over the past centuiry there have been only two worthwhile Conserrvative Prime Ministers, Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. The others all have been Tory Wets.

Thanks, Michael. I had completely forgotten the "wet" tag.

I think you might enjoy reading the postings of Tamzin Lightwater.


"Tamzin" is reputedly a highly placed Tory who prefers to remain anonymous. She cracks me up every week.
